Young Marines

The Douglas County Young Marines was founded in 2005 as the Castle Rock Young Marines. In 2007 the name was changed to the Douglas County Young Marines because of the overwhelming support given to the unit by communities throughout Douglas County.

We meet every other Saturday from 0900-1500 at Lutheran High School Parker in Parker, Colorado. Interested individuals must first complete recruit training to earn the title of “Young Marine”. For more information on the next recruit training schedule, please click on Recruit Training link at the top left of the page.


“From this day forward, I sincerely promise I will set an example for all other youth to follow and I shall never do anything that would bring disgrace or dishonor upon my God, my country and its flag, my parents, myself, or the Young Marines. These I will honor and respect in a manner that will reflect credit upon them and myself.”
